God Will Fight For You

Deuteronomy 3:21–22

Throughout the wilderness journey, God reminded the Israelites of what He had done in the past in order to give them courage and hope for the future.

As the reins of leadership were passed from Moses to Joshua, Moses encouraged Joshua with a review of recent victories.

Joshua saw with his own eyes what God did to those who opposed them.

If God has shown Himself faithful to this point, He will surely continue to do so.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

When we face intimidating circumstances in our lives, we can take heart from Moses’ words to Joshua: “Do not be afraid of them; the LORD your God himself will fight for you” (Deuteronomy 3:22).

God can strengthen and encourage us when we trust in Him.

Defeating The Enemy’s Attacks

You, dear children,
are from God and have overcome them,
because the one who is in you is greater than
the one who is in the world.
(1 John 4:4)

Let us stand strong in Jesus’ strength, no matter what Satan throws at us or against us.

Let us be encouraged by the many testimonies of God’s faithful people in persecuted lands.

Let us help our brethren in difficult lands.

Let us pray for them.

May the Church of God continue to grow
in difficult lands and in difficult times.
